Abstract:

A computer program is described which may be used to determine the maximum load which a craft floating in calm water is capable of supporting. This is accomplished by solving the following problem Given the hull geometry, location of above water hull openings, and initial ship weight and center of gravity position, find the magnitude of the variable weight to be placed in a prescribed location such that the resulting static equilibrium sinkage, trim and heel brings one or more of the hull openings down to, but not below, the water surface.
